Former SME Colleague Inducted Into Michigan Construction Hall of Fame

SME fondly remembers friend and colleague Don Templin as he is inducted today into the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame.

Don led the development of our corporate headquarters in the early 90s. Even back then, sustainability was a top priority. The design includes several sustainable features such as south facing offices with labs in the rear; trees to provide shade in the summer and sunlight in the winter; premium, high-efficiency glass to improve solar efficiency; and berms along the first floor to take advantage of the insulating nature of the ground. These features and Don’s forward thinking are still serving SME well today. 

Hall of Fame inductees are selected based on technical, managerial and leadership achievements within the construction industry. Click here to see the full roster of inductees.
